21 simple Mazda MX5 Old V New Comparison Firstgeneration NA V Fourthgeneration ND

like It Or Not The 80s Were Cool Madonna And Prince Were At The Height Of Their Success And Big Hair Wasn't Just Acceptable It Was Encouraged, But A Very Special Thing Happened In February Of 1989 The Mazda Mx-5 Was Born It All Started With The First Generation Mazda Mx-5 The NA It Had An 85 Kilowatt 130 Newton Meter 1.6 Liter Engine Up Front Rear-wheel Drive And It Weighed Under A Thousand Kilograms It Was Affordable Too With Prices Starting Around The $29,000 Mark Since Then The Japanese Soft Top Has Evolved Through Several Generations Well And Truly Cementing Its Title As The World's Best-selling Two-seater Sports Car And Now 26 Years Later Mazda Has Launched The All-new Fourth-generation Mx-5 The Nd, But How Does It Compare To The Original Here To Help Us Decide Is The Owner Of The NA You See Behind Us Nick Bodhi G'day Nick How Are You Good Thanks Dave How Are You Very Well Mate You Happy To Take Us For A Few Laps Absolutely Let's Go For It. So, Nick Can You Tell Us A Little Bit About This Car And And How You Came About Getting It.

So, About The Carts In 1989 Mx-5 It's The 38 That Was Brought Over To Australia It's Also A Genuine Mazda Mx-5 No You Know Us Roadster Yep So. I Wasn't Imported By Anyone It Was Brought Over By Master It's A 1.6 Litre 5-speed Manual Is The Best Way To Have It It's Completely Original Other Than The Roll Bars You Can See Behind Me And The Wheels Here That Has Taken Off A Slightly Later Model Na Just With The Intention Of Bringing Up The Look Of The Car. So, A Little Bit Nicer It Was The Mx-5 A Car That You Always Had In The Vacuum Idle Was It A Family Thing That Kind Of Stood You Towards It.

I Never Really Heard Of Them Until Dad's Friend Recommended It She's A Car Collector Yep. So, He Has His Own 1990 Mx-5 And The Idea Was To Have A Two-seater Car That. I Can Drive On My Red Keys Yeah Oh.

I'm Not Pressured Into Overloading It's Not True Powerful So. I'm Not Going To Get Myself In Too Much Trouble Yep Because 1989 Model. I Put It On Club Registration If.

I'm Not Driving Too Much And The Other Benefit Was That It's More Likely To Appreciate And Depreciate Because It's Less Common That There's Such Good Models Out It's Good To Know That You're Smarter Than. I Am That's That's Reassuring Now That You've Owned It For A Little Bit Do You Have A Favorite Thing About The Car, If You Can Narrow It Down To Just One Thing Definitely The Pop-up Lights Yep Yeah. I Thought Was That It's Different There's Not Many Cars That Have Them Around It's Something Unique You Do The Flash To Pass Where Every Time You Put Flash The High Beams They Pop Up And Down Yeah It's Quite Amusing To See The Look On People's Faces While You Do That Especially Our Kids.

I've Got A Lot Of Young Cousins. So, Kind Of It's Like Amazing Add Some Character Doesn't Yeah And. I've Got To Ask The Tough Question Is There Anything About The Car That You Don't Like.

So, Much It's A Short Nose Crank The Actual Speaks Shortly Into 1994 The Short Nose Is Prone To Failing Yeah Crank Wobble Thankfully This One Doesn't Have Any Wobble Yet At 206 Thousand Kilometers Yeah, But We'll See How It Goes, But That Would Be The Only Thing. I Dislike About It Now It's A Variant Car Should We Should We Pull Back In And Jump Into The New One You Can Fill That One Out. So, Jumping In This And Out Of Your Old Car What Are You First Impressions What Do You Immediately Feel Is Different Or Similar It's A Lot More Powerful Definitely A Lot More Comfortable In Their Suspension In The Seat Yep Steering Is A Lot Different Sort Of More Than A Follow Through With Every Movement Whereas The NA Is A Lot Smoother And Less Adjustment Needed Like A Little Follow Through The Corners Like It's On Rails Is There Something That You Notice Straightaway That You Prefer In This Car Compared To Your Car Definitely The Luxury Of The Comfort And Then From That There's More Power, But Then Again The Mx-5 Isn't All About The Power It's About What You Can Do What Power You've Got.

So, Yep Does It Still Feel Mx-5 E To You Is The Most Important Question You're Out Mx-5 Expert You've Got The Na This Is What This Car Is All About Is Kind Of Getting Back To That Heritage Eddy, But It Looks You're Cool Definitely Still Feels Like An Mx-5 It Feels More Refined Than The Original. I Guess, But Considering This Twenty Six Years Difference Between The Two It's Expected Obviously It's A Newer Car It's Going To Feel A Little Bit Different, But For A New Mx-5 It Definitely Ticks All The Boxes Of The Perfect Cornering And The 50/50 Way Ratio. So, It's Still A Great Mx-5 So, If You Had Two Cars In The Garage Would You Have The Old Mx-5 And The New One If.

I Can Afford It Yet Didn't Swap This For The Old One Nah Think About It Do You Miss Looking Over The Bonnet And Seeing The Pop Up Headlines It's Quite Useful When Gauging Where The Front Of The Car Is Especially In In Parking And Daily Driving, But At Least Good To Have No Distraction As Well By Having Just A Flat Bow On It. So, This Is An Important Question Because Believe It Or Not. I've Never Actually Driven An N/a First-generation Mx-5 You Happy Throwing Me The Case For A Couple Of Laps Absolutely Yes Let's Pull Into The Pits And.

I'm Gonna Jump In Your Car Well We Kicked Nick Out And We're Going Solo And This Is My First Ever Drive Of An NA Mx-5 And. I Am A Little Bit Excited This Is Cool He Was. So, Spot-on At The View At The Front With The Pop-up Headlights Just You Know Instantly What Car You're In Just By Looking At The Front And Few Cars Can Do That The Steering Is Definitely Heavier Than The New Car, But It's Kind Of Gives You A Nice Feedback And It Loads Up Really Well Is That Awesome Exhaust Noise Engine Noise That You Can Just Hear And It Just Sounds Great It's Definitely Louder Than The New Car It Just Adds.

So, Much Character To It The Brakes Still Feel Nice There's No ABS To Join Me No Power Steering And No Air Conditioning, But Immediate And Direct The Throttle Response Is Actually Really Good That Nachi Gearbox Is Just Just The Best Such A Short Throw Matches The Clutch Perfectly It's A Car You Just Want To Keep Driving You Don't Have To Necessarily Drive It Fast, But You Just Want To Keep Driving It. I Don't Think. I'm Going To Give It Back To Him It Feels Like - It Changes Directions Well It Lets You Know It Lets You Know What It's Doing All The Time It's.

So, Much Fun All Right We Should Probably Bring It Back Before When It Gets Too Worried Thanks. So, Much For That Nick That Thing Is Awesome And Thanks Again For Coming Along Today Be My Pleasure Date The Mazda Mx-5 Was Originally Conceived To Be A Lightweight Affordable Sports Car Built For People Who Not Only Loved Cars, But Love Driving And While Subsequent Generations May Have Strayed Somewhat From The Original The Experts Agree The All-new Fourth-generation Is A Welcome Return To Form.
